Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn may not have married, yet their friendship is unique.
One of Hollywood’s longest-standing couples recently said that they were continuously questioned about why they never married.
And they were like, ‘Who cares about that?’ Russell said. They’d asked their kids whether they were interested. They didn’t do it.
They met on the set of the 1966 comedy “The One and Only, Authentic, Original Family Band.” She was 21 at the time, and he was 16, and Hawn earlier described Russell as “adorable” but “far too young” for her to date.
They began dating in 1983 and just marked four decades of marriage on Valentine’s Day.
Their key secret to being together for 40 years: don’t marry.
In an interview, Hawn said that they’ve done quite well without getting married. She feels dedicated already, and isn’t that what marriage is meant to do? So long as her emotional condition is one of commitment, honesty, care, and love, they’ll be great.
They have raised their kids admirably; they are wonderful individuals. They did a fantastic job there, and they didn’t even have to be married to do so. She likes waking up every day and seeing him and knowing that she has a choice. There is no compelling reason to marry.
It’s not that they’ve never been married before. Russell was married for four years to “Elvis” actress Season Hubley until their divorce was completed in 1983. Boston is the former couple’s only child.
Hawn married filmmaker Gus Trikonis in 1969, however the couple divorced in 1976.
The actress later married guitarist Bill Hudson; they were married for six years before divorcing in 1982. Kate Hudson and Oliver Hudson are Hawn and Hudson’s two kids.
For folks like them, the marriage licence wasn’t going to generate something that they wouldn’t have had before, Russell said of their relationship. He is not sure – 40 years isn’t long enough to ultimately say, ‘Oh, I think…’
Their children married- their son Wyatt is very happily married, and Oliver is very happily married, Hawn remarked. Katie was married once and it didn’t work, and she’s with this most lovely person and don’t know whether she’ll marry again. The point is that they all attempted marriage, and marriage does not always work.
It’s not about the wedding. It’s about the individuals, the connection, and the will to stick together. And that’s a significant one because one can have it if one want it. One have to give things up, however the pleasure and thrill of being together and stroking someone’s toes at night is a very lovely sensation.
